You have a house full of books that you know you no longer need or will read! What to do with them can be a bit of a dilemma! Why not gift them to your family and friends.
- Simply bundle up a selection of books you think someone will like and tie them up with some nice ribbon.
- Attach a gift tag explaining that the books are pre-read (you can use my little poem if you like:
“Although these books are not new, they are new to you
and I thought you’d enjoy a good read
When you’re through with them, you’ll know what to do
Gift them to others to return the good deed ” by MaryAnne Bennie
- Include in your note what you enjoyed about the book selection and perhaps the reason why you thought they would enjoy them.
- Encourage them to forward the books onto others when they have finished reading them.
What a great way to farewell your books. Remember you can always box your books up and send them to your local charity store where they will recycled and enjoyed by others.
